I knw..Bad..! My dad's there now..The communication was down for more than 6 hours including GSM.

Luckily He is still driving a Jeep...The Camry delivery will be done during Navratris..!

He said it felt just like Home with all the traffic and Signals haywire..But the magnitude was realised only much later..!
